Shockwave Demo - Macromedia Director 3D

Hi everyone, I've been beavering away for a while on a short demo designed to wow clients over to the idea of using shockwave. Any feedback is appreciated, specifically on usability, and how it performs on you machine. [url]http://dev.unwrong.com/snowglobe/dswmedia/[/url] Cheers Jon [url]www.unwrong.com[/url]...

    Absolutely stunning Demo!

    Thought you were using emitters there for a moment, but clearly far cooler
    than that ;)

    Multiplanes that point at the camera with 2 layer textures and
    textureTransform scrolling maybe?

    Runs perfectly on P4 2.4Ghz 1Gig nVidia Quadro4 in hardware mode.

    Obviously software mode is a bit crippled.

    Hey, as a suggestion, why not put some gentle wind + tree rustle loop effect
    in, and a clock chime and owl hoot for some audio atmosphere? :)

    Cheers

    this demo is so cool!
    i liked the way you can shake the glass ball

    and when you get close to the little home inside, its amazing, the details...
    good work!

    *on high quality, ran perfectly fine with:
    P4 2.0Ghz
    1G RAM
    ge force FX 5200

    Thanks for the replies. Good to hear it's running well (although 2Ghz+ machines
    I'm not suprised :) )

    Richard, you're spot on with the technique used for the particles. Director's
    built in particle systems are fairly limited in what they can do, and pointing
    a billboard at the camera isn't too expensive so . . .

    We're planning on getting some SFX in there - chimes for the clock when it
    hits the hour etc as it all feels a bit isolated at present.

    Very nice! I just tested it on my POS computer (Pentium 3, 800 mhz, 256
    MB RAM) and it looked really good. A little choppy, but far, far better
    than I expected. Good work!

    Blimey, viewable on 800Mhz?! Good to hear.

    I've been getting reports of problems with Win200Pro + IE or Firefox. If
    anybody else is having this problem, any extra info would be much appreciated.

    Can't be unwrong, it's unreal.
    Well done !

    p.s.
    Smooth movement on P4/3.2GHz & Radeon X800.
    Only few FPS on Celeron 1GHz & GF4MX440.
    This is a common problem for many ShockWave developers: bad performances on
    entry-level machines.
    You have to optimize the code and / or the geometry.

    keep up the good work

    a nano bit of chop when shaking, but clears up quick.
